In high-school her instrument was the upright bass – a lone girl among “eight-foot-tall guys, goofing off with the tubas”. There’s a sense of play that still suffuses her music, jostling under the songs of regret and love, want and joy.

    Our Love is formed around a mixture of digital pop production, hip hop inspired beats, muted house basslines and a love of shuffling garage that can be traced all the way back to the time of Start Breaking My Heart which are, of course, all filtered through Dan's own unique perspective. The warm analogue sounds of classic soul should not be overlooked either, for they weave themselves most intensely into the records DNA.

    Crooks on Tape is John Schmersal (Enon, Brainiac), Rick Lee (Enon, Skeleton Key, Butter 08), and Joey Galvan. The unscripted band was born out of a simple notion: convene, improvise, and record every moment.
    In 2010, the Los Angeles trio assembled a rotating fortress of instruments, synthesizers, samplers, and loopers. Crooks recorded hundreds of hours of material, largely instrumental in its original performance. Fingerprint is the first evidence of this undertaking and a window into the band’s sound. The debut record you hear is analogous to tiny snapshots of an altered crime scene.

A journey that continues in downwind.
    Isak Strand vs. TOE is just one of those bands that you can’t put your finger on what their influences are. You could spot sounds from reggae, jazz, pop and hip-hop. They are travelling in known waters, but the mix they do of genres, take the groove of one style, melodies from another and pulse from the third. That sound is unique.

    The Range is James Hinton, 25, of Providence, RI. He’s been making music since he was 13, first on a little Fostex machine recording looped drums and synthesizer.
    At Brown University, while studying Physics, he started making electronic music full time under the alias Stegosaurus, producing two albums under that moniker, ‘Quill’ and ‘Cower’ in 2009 and 2010 respectively. In the mid 2010 he started making music as The Range, drawing from more percussive footwork sounds.

  99. The Ruby Suns (NZL)
    Artist image
    Travel through the desert of pop long enough and, no matter the odds, eventually you’ll find an oasis. And it just might be frozen.
    When the Ruby Suns’ main mover Ryan McPhun alighted in Oslo, Norway in the winter of 2010, he knew he’d found an artistic haven. He’d always been a musical wayfarer, collecting sounds and styles from his travels around the globe, depositing influences and ephemera into three knockout Ruby Suns albums (2006’s The Ruby Suns, 2008’s Sea Lion and 2010’s Fight Softly).

  100. This Is Head (SWE)
    Artist image
    From the first time This Is Head started playing different venues and spots around their hometown of Malmö they have assumed a natural place in the centre of all things great.
    Their take on kraut disco meets smart indie rock fit in perfectly from the start. Since then, they have evolved into something much greater; a confident machine that seems made for the times we live in. Yet they sound timeless. The growth seems to have been rapid, but it was all at their own pace, in their own time.

  101. Thomas Stenström (SWE)
    Artist image
    Snart två år sedan debuten och nu är det dags igen. Denna gången är låtarna skrivna för scenen. Dom är skrivna för att dansa och gråta till samtidigt. Med händerna upp i luften.
    Första smakprovet från vad som komma skall är "Fåglar", fyra minuter stillsam pop-magi med vännen Frida Sundemo gästandes på sång. Mer musik är lovat att komma inom kort och ett nytt album planerat att släppas efter sommaren.

  103. Tove Lo (SWE)
    Artist image
    As anyone with ears will tell you, Sweden is quite good when it comes to fostering amazing pop talent. With Stockholm's Tove Lo, however, the typical mould of elegant heartfelt electropop has been beautifully corrupted by the sort of lyrical honesty and rawness that not only ruffles feathers, but makes you want to clutch your hand to your chest and wail along at the top of your lung.
    “I don't like to filter it. I get into a flow and get it out, but if I stop myself I just think 'why? Why be subtle? Just say it as it is'. It's not 'I'm a single girl, let's party all night long', it's more 'I'm really destructive right now and I don't care'. I think my honesty bothers some people.”

  104. Travis Bretzer (CAN)
    Artist image
    Hailing from the isolated climes of Edmonton (Alberta, Canada), 23 year old Travis Bretzer has an appropriately singular, off-beat take on guitar pop.
    An adroit songwriter and true troubadour, Travis sidesteps easy pigeonholing - his breezy, classic songs touching on the new-pop of Orange Juice, the playful idiosyncrasies of Prefab Sprout, with a freewheeling sensibility present in much of the Stiff Records catalog.

    The band have been making a name for themselves in the North West ever since, refining and perfecting their unusually otherworldly, primitively spiritual sound.

  107. Tweens (USA)
    Artist image
    Bridget Battle’s last band might have been a high school choir, but the 21-year-old singer for Cincinnati’s Tweens is no goody two shoes.
    Look no further for proof than their recently released Self-Titled LP, the punk-tinged debut from the trash-pop trio, that showcases a melodic, driven and exceedingly catchy sound that’s anything but well behaved. So rat your hair, slip on your leather jacket and hold on tight because Tweens may be young but they’re certainly not naïve, and with the release of this freshman LP, they’re breaking curfew and nobody’s safe.

VITA BERGEN is playing a distinct blend of melodic and psychedelic electro-indie-rock with a live show never seen before in Scandinavia.

    With a passion for astrology, the paranormal and nature, healing stones, tropical landscapes, mythology and mountains, we introduce the constanty head banging Lisa Pyk-Wirström and tour de force, the hissing feline Cissi Efraimsson. For Vulkano, it's really all about their live show, a power unto itself. If they could, they'd have streaming hot bombastic shows containing choreography, costumes, magic tricks and light displays, creating a world where everything is possible.

    Artist image
    When Saints Go Machine are a hard band to pin down, four young men doing things with electro pop that no one has done before.
    The Danish four-piece formed in 2007 are a complicated mix of influences. There’s dance music in there, for sure, but also post punk, some experimental electronica in the Aphex Twin mould, and, crucially, a healthy dose of pop. You could describe the end result as a heady mix of Caribou, The Knife/Fever Ray and Arthur Russell. But, really, it doesn’t sound like anything else out there.

    By way of background, both Ramsey and McCandless stem from island roots, from Canada’s Western frontier, that place of rising tides, beach side campfires and fogged-in cedars. Yet, there’s another facet, a cool urbaneness, the measured cadence of a city strut. Years spent in the fertile cosmopolitanism of Montreal have made their mark.
